Notes: No longer produced. I have smoked about four ounces of this in several pipes. I like it best in an Ashton XX, as it is a good fit for the cut of the tobacco.

Appearance: Dark brown dense 1 cm discs mixed with lighter brown to dark brown thick cut ribbon. A cut twist, similar to Escudo Or Gawith and Hoggarth's Curly Cut.

Aroma: Yeasty sweet rolls, cherries, paper, smoke, maple sugar candy, old books.

Taste: Sweet, rich, German fruity aromatic flavor. Black cherries and smoke over a soft, palatable cavendished Virginia flavor of decent tobacco.

Comparisons: This is quite similar to Saint Bruno Flake or Brindley's English Slices, although it is a bit softer owing to the cavendished leaf.

Bottom Line: Unlikely to be found, as it is long since discontinued. This is a fun, easier curly cut blend for those who enjoy Saint Bruno and other rich, strong cherry-fruit Lakeland style blends.
